Every Regiment has legends and songs. These go beyond the tunes of the marching band and the laments of a church service but tell the real human story of the time and place. They come from the soldiers and form part of the DNA of a unit, connecting past to present in vivid, emotionally-charged, unifying ways. Stories make a Regiment become more than just a badge to the people in it.
That said, The London Scottish Regiment have one hell of a story to tell. The Hodden Grey "tartan" was introduced in 1859 and became the iconic colour of The London Scottish Regiment worn by this Young Territorial.
Ian Bruce was invited to record and produce this album of tunes and historical stories collected over the years by the Regiment. Ian put music to the stories and made them into wonderful songs. He also recorded the album in his own studio and produced, mixed and mastered it, calling on several friends to session with him. They include: Fiona Forbes (backing vocals), Denise Crighton-Ward (bass), Lt Col Rob Pitt (recitations), Kev Green (lead vocals, harmony vocals and recitations), Charlie Milne (lead vocals, harmony vocals and recitations), Gregor Lowrey (accordion and melodeon), Pete Clark(fiddles), Alastair Morrow (drums), Alasdair ‘Sandy’ Gibbs (bagpipes) plus others.
